Introducing Pinguin 2.0 with fun new features!

Since our initial launch, we have been hard at work figuring out exactly what our communities want. While Pinguin is the “Chat app for nerds.” We found that us nerds like to have some fun too. That’s why we’re packing Pinguin 2.0 with everything you need to have the most fun and informed conversations possible.

So what’s new?

In-App Browser: Want to reference some song lyrics or find a link to an article you would like to share? Browse the web right inside of the app, copy the link and return right back to the conversation to share it.

Photo Upload: Our Beta allowed photos taken in the moment. We quickly found that people love to edit their photos or share their favorite memories stored on their camera roll. Now you’re able to share your best moments with your channels without limits (Video Upload Coming Soon!)

GIFs: Who doesn’t love GIFs? We’ve integrated GIPHY into 2.0 so you can react to the conversation with a well-placed cat GIF.

Live Events/AMAs: We’ve opened up AMA channels for some of our favorite influencers to chat directly with their audience. Check in and see if any of your favorite influencers are live!

We’re constantly learning from our community and will continue to build Pinguin to be the best communication tool for you guys. We hope you enjoy 2.o and continue to give us feedback. Check out our official ProductHunt post to find out more about 2.o!

Launch Day

The last 24 hours have been a complete rollercoaster and if that’s any indication of our future, I couldn’t be more excited. First, I’d would like to thank everybody that checked us out on Product Hunt, downloaded the app and showed support on launch day. I would also like to thank the rockstar team that worked around the clock (and around the globe) to make sure we were fully prepared for launch.

On Tuesday night we were hunted by the top hunter on Product Hunt, Chris Messina(We owe you a HUGE thank you too). We saw incredible feedback from the Product Hunt community and today we were named iOS App of the day!

This is a small victory but I think it’s appropriate to take a minute to celebrate my team and all of the new users we got to meet today. We’re looking forward to getting to know you and building the communities that you’re proud to be a part of. Back to work.

Thank you!
